Pretty poor experience. Pricey for what it is: $42 for a powered site - on grass. Facilities are fairly run down still. Have to pay extra for showers $0.50 for 6 minutes and only two shower cubicles in the women's. Coin box is on outside of cubicle and hot water starts when you put coin in, so tricky to use. Instructions explicitly stated to get change from reception if you don't have any, but we got yelled at for interrupting the staff's 'lie in' (it was 9am on a Friday). Apparently reception doesn't open until 10am 'during the winter months', despite hours not being listed anywhere and not being informed as much the day before on check in. We tried to ask other campers for change before disturbing reception because it looked closed, but also had a time schedule to stick to - that was thrown off. Kitchen is missing most utensils, a drawer of lots of forks and one knife. Lots of angry signs about guests cleaning up after themselves "I am not your mother" but still very grubby. Not worth the cost. If you don't want people coming to reception for shower change - maybe don't charge for hot showers? Or get a change machine? Or ask if they need change during check in? No one deserves to be yelled at because they need a shower and were following your instructions and rules.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 75 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Offers all facilities, including washing mashines and several ovens to have a pizza or two. Showers take are 50 Cent for 6 minutes. Overall nice spot but not cheap. Kayak tours through Abel tasman start nearby, would recommend these as well.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Very well located close to abel tasman park. Facilities needs to be renewed.
Great place to camp after hiking Able Tasman. Facilities were up to date, very very clean with great hot showers($3 for 6 mintues) and washer/dryer. The owners are so, so nice and helpful and even lent us their ketchup for our daughter's hotdog. They obviously work very very hard. There were birds that my daughter loved to look at and a TV room that has some DVDs we borrowed for one night. Great value for the money!
$46 for two people on an unpowered site. For that you get Internet which isn't working. And of course you have to pay extra for the showers.
Worse price/performance ratio so far in NZ.
And as others already mentioned : it is situated between two noisy streets.
Would give it 10/10 if it had a dump station. Had to travel to the New World car park to empty the toilet cartridge. Lovely people.
Nice and cozy, very clean, friendly staff, normal priced.
Nice campground, well stocked kitchen. A garden which you can pick veges and herbs from, with friendly locals and owners.
